Abstract
This conceptual engineering study concerns the reclamation of combined sewer overflows and utilization of the reclaimed waters in a major water-oriented recreational facility for the District of Columbia. The investigation encompasses a comprehensive solution of environmental problems by proposing multi-use objectives and facilities. Principal objectives of the project included: (1) evaluation of rainfall runoff relationships for sizing of storage and treatment plant capacities; (2) confirmation of treatment feasibility using filtration and an activated carbon process; and (3) development of sufficient data for preliminary design purposes. Laboratory studies not only demonstrated process feasibility, but showed the need for including flocculation and sedimentation for removal of minute particles, together with chlorine and iodine addition for maximum disinfection. The recommended storage/treatment plan provides for a 175 million gallon storage basin, a 50 million-gallon-per-day reclamation facility and two 46-acre swimming and boating lakes. Cost effectiveness (Cost/Benefit Ratio) of the project are given. (Author)
